Re: [peditors] off topic - computer dummies and computers
- Hi Guys:
Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, only JohnM's advice would work (hire a
local student). I don't think you understood what computer dummy really means
although I bet that many older computer users are like that. E.g., VNC will
neither reboot a crashed computer nor will it plug in the backup hard disk.
It could help in other circumstances thought such as when a window disappears
(was shrunken but the user thinks it went to lalaland).
I even know at least one member of the US National Academy of Sciences who is
unable to respond privately to an e-mail (and hits the "respond to all" even
when the message is supposed to be private).
